“Cop” by pd lyons


 

Cop”

Sometimes he woke me up so early getting ready for work

I learned how morning could be dark as night

~

Sometimes he woke me up so late

Just to kiss me back asleep

~

When my father was a policeman

~

No one thought armour piercing rounds

Were a constitutional right

~

No one but the bad guys

Thought he was a bad guy

~

We knew he was the guy you called for help

The guy who always showed up
